The neutral trend is one of my favorites this fall, especially the camel/black and tan/black combinations. And I think I’m going to like them even more in spring’s interesting shapes and leather combinations. …
Union Square is one of my favorite places in New York. I know not all New Yorkers feel that way, but there’s just something about the area that seems so alive. And DSW and Forever 21 are there, of course. I’m always up for a good game of chicken with New York traffic, and the small side streets east of Union Square Park aren’t nearly as busy as the others. Easier to take photos in the street.
A loose shirt with extremely long sleeves and wedge booties are totally casual… right? At least that was what I was thinking on Sunday morning. If I’m rather tired looking it’s because I was eating Papaya Dog at 1am and ordering Jason Wu for Target at 3am. The link hunt was kind of annoying and things I wanted sold out (sigh, no poplin dress), so it took me forever to finally checkout. Hopefully I like the canvas bag and skirt I ordered, but if not I’ll be thankful for easy returns to a Target store.
Sunday afternoon (after sleep), I took a bit of a walk… …
It has been so windy the last few days, as you can see. I’ve really started to miss those balmy 40 degree days. There’s been a lot of layering going on.
Confession: I don’t like this outfit. There’s just something… off, but I can’t identify it. I think… I may have liked a brown shoe better. Ah well. Hindsight. I’ve been really feeling black and brown lately, which you know if you’ve seen my Pinterest style board in the last week. Practically obsessed.
I’m wearing my Vivienne Vivienne Tam faux fur vest (c/o a gift card from TJ Maxx), Vince shirt, J.Crew chevron shirt (Dec 2010), J Brand jeans (similar), MIA wedge ankle boots, and Anthropologie necklace. My Coach Court bag is vintage, but it’s available on Coach.com.
Welcome to Letters from the City, a lifestyle photoblog.
My name is Alex and I have been blogging in some form or another since 1998. I’m a former Manhattanite now living the quieter life in Queens. I like outerwear and red lipstick.
When I was younger, I was let loose in a GAP Kids one too many times, resulting in many of the fashion choices you see here in my photos. I also read, traveled, and took cooking and art classes. Art eventually led me around to photography, and to this day I do enjoy a good brunch.
